Visual effects veteran brings his creative expertise to the studio’s senior team.
Cinesite’s London studio recently welcomed VFX supervisor Ben White, who joins the company with 20+ years of features and episodic experience. Ben has worked as a CG/VFX supervisor on a variety of large-scale features, including Guardians of The Galaxy, Avatar, Man of Steel, Where The Wild Things Are and several Harry Potter movies, and was CG supervisor for the team responsible for creating the scarred, schizophrenic character Two Face in The Dark Knight. He won a British Independent Film Award for ‘Best Effects’ for The Ritual as well as 2 previous VES Awards, including for ‘Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project’ for his work as VFX Supervisor on Fast and Furious: Supercharged.
An industry veteran, Ben first honed his skills in commercials at The Mill. He then joined Mill Film and the Oscar-winning team on Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, notably helping create the prodigious 360-degree Coliseum shot. Since then he progressed from CG Generalist to VFX Supervisor while working on projects at Framestore and MPC.
Commenting on Ben’s appointment Caroline Garrett, Head of VFX at Cinesite London said “Ben’s arrival to the studio will strengthen our senior creative team even further. He has a respected skillset and fantastic eye, this combined with his contagious positive energy that fosters open collaboration will be of huge benefit us as we continue to take on bigger and more challenging projects.”
